McLaren MP4-25 confident of wing legality.



McLaren believes there will be no legality issue with the design of its back wing, in spite of Red Bull Racing chief Christian Horner enlightening that his team is looking for explanation from the FIA over the subject. Christian Horner said the British newspaper media that his group and Ferrari were miserable about the way that McLaren was using the air box and engine cover to help stall the rear wing of the MP4-25 – which could give the team a straight-line advantage.

Here is a small piece of a fuss over McLaren’s rear wing; Christian Horner was quoted as saying. They have a slot on it and they can pick up a lot of straight-line speed. I believe it will get determined before the first race. We’ve asked the FIA for clarification although I think Ferrari is almost certainly more thrilled than we are to be honest.

The McLaren has, though, stirred to play down the matter – and says it is not only sure the design is completely within the rules but also has questioned whether Ferrari are as upset as Red Bull Racing. A spokesman for the Working-based team told: We are very sure that our car is totally legal – and we’re not conscious of any complaint. In fact, we’ve spoken to Ferrari this morning and they’re not aware of any complaint either.

The Ferrari sources have set to AUTOSPORT that the team has no purpose of taking the matter further, and have ruled out the possibility of it lodging a complaint.
